A loan of $850 helped to buy chemical and organic fertilizer, pest control, herbicides, etc.


Jose Santiago's story

Jose, 55 years old, lives alone in his own house. Since he was little, he has worked in farming planting maize and beans and this has given him the necessary experience to produce a good harvest. When the harvest is ready, it is stored in bags as is shown in the photo in order to then take to sell in different markets found near to his residence. Jose is requesting a loan to buy chemical and organic fertilizers, pest control, herbicides, etc. and be able to continue with his plantings in order to have a better quality of life.
